Ordinate dimensioning


Hello, Can someone please tell me what this feature is and how to get rid of it?  I've done ordinate dimensions for a few years and all of a sudden this feature is showing up.  I was able to remove it from one drawing.  I tried the same steps to remove this in another drawing, but I can't get rid of it now.  What would cause this to even show up in the first place.  Again, I've done ordinate dimensioning for a few years and never saw it.  ThanksOrdinate.JPG


Re: Ordinate dimensioning


I had reviewed the "Show Dimension Line" box several times and it was not checked.  I went back and looked again and it was checked.  I unchecked it and that line went away.  I had even checked in the main drafting preferences and it wasn't checked there.  Any ideas why it would appear to not be acting consistent?  Thanksshow dim.JPG

Check where setting origination is coming from.

Choose which you want to use, or customize your own so this feature is off.

I'm suspecting this is a "part" level customer default.


So make sure the seed part you use has the setting correct (or else update the draftings settings to use the cstomer default vales in the part)
